JiaYu G3S quad core listed for $137

@ 2013/05/24
After fulfilling its promises with the JiaYu G4, the quad core G3S now makes an appearance in their official online store for a low price tag of just $137.

the G3 design has flawed GPS receiver placement, making GPS localization hard.
the G4 is underway, hopefully resolves this.

OS is bog standard Android, would wait for newer version to also get the more recent version, more ram and higher resolution.

$200-230 is more realistic... still extremely affordable

dirt cheap, the G3 I gave my father is working wonderful. The G3 was months out before HTC one, but unlike the One, the G3 is plastic; less sophisticated feel, but for a fraction of the cost, who cares
